Vivacious Volnay

2004 Volnay-Santenots
Thierry et Pascal Matrot
Premier Cru
Jen's Notes

This is an absolutely gorgeous Burgundy. Even the first scents are packed with berry cobbler aromas. The palate is densely fruity as well, but smoky and tart (blood orange, perhaps?) accents give an elegance and complexity that you might not see in similarly fruity Pinots from the new world. The finish is nearly endless. When we went back to K&L to buy more, I couldn't believe it was only $37.99.
